Once properly unpacked the archives, I put the gamedata in a game 1.006 (the same for LWR ToD) ,and it starts.

Now the gamedata is huge and is 5.35 GB!

So for a beta ,I don't think it's necessary to upload that!The final version to come out very soon ...

As against ,this is the converter that I use you to unpack properly archives without problems.
I put three .bat files to unpack the archives directly by clicking on the files.

http://www.mediafire.com/?jj22f4npldaodg8

So,you need to do

1 Put the 3 .xdb in the mods directory and the files in the archive above.
2 Click on xdb1.bat ,xdb2.bat and xdb3.bat (wait 1 or 2 mn).
3 Remove the 3 .xdb files of the folder mods .
4 Remove the file fx_stalker.avi ( in gamedata\textures\fx ) .
5 Put the gamedata in SoC 1.005 (not tested) or 1.006 (OK sure)

Then,I launch the game with link XR_3DA.exe -nointro-noprefetch
(I have the cd for the 1.006).

unpacking

To unpack this mod, use the rma tools!
I uploaded the tools with the bat files edited to unpack the files for this mod.
Open one of the bat files and change the file name to the same as whatever you want to unpack in the future.

http://www.mediafire.com/?8pwzn8sto55wtv7

edit: should probably tell you how.
Put the files in the download in the same folder as the game data files. Just click the bat file you need. It will decompress the file follow prompts.
If there is a path just edit the bat file text to unpack the new file name

converter -unpack plgdt.xdb1
pause

to

converter -unpack plgdt.xdb3
pause

Same here i hate stupid database version's of mods which are impossible to unpack.
---END QUOTATION---



I believe it's mostly a way to keep users from tampering with stuff or losing files, mergin other mods in (which causes a shit-load of problems for us modders, cause we're the ones that get hit with someone's questions when shit doesn't work . . . nothing like "hey, I merged AAO with Bad-ass mod v2.0 and now all the bandits are acting funny and calling me girly names! WTF?" , and generally making things problematic.

But, unless I'm mistaken, using the database method can be problematic with different game versions and localizations . . .

I'll be the third then,
Olivious , How about getting the gamedata folder out and uploading that for everyone. I have the mod but can't get it out either. Why do they have to do it like this when it can be so simple.

Of course.
First we need to unpack the three .xdb1,2 et 3.
here how to do it :

http://www.stalkerfrance.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4437

Then remove the fx_stalker.avi ( in gamedata\textures\fx ) which cause an error at launch:

Expression : fatal error
Function : CTexture::Load
File : E:\stalker\sources\trunk\xr_3da\SH_Texture.cpp
Line : 211
Description : <no expression>
Arguments : Can't open video stream

Don't forget to remove the .xdbx to folder mods.

Then I have some russian text files needed (ui st,mp...)
I take these missing files from unpack the original .db.

Incredible mod!
